How Internet Fraudsters Hacked My Friend's First Bank Account
I was at home last week Monday tutoring a guy how to produce Structural designs for Architectural drawings. My friend came in and told me he received a call from First Bank Customer care. The person that called told him everything about his account including his account balance. The person told him the amount he has in his other bank (Sterling) as well.
I advised him to rush to the bank immediately to lodge his complaint. When he got to the Bank, the customer told him that the call he received wasn't from them. My friend told them to froze the account and requested for the new ATM Card immediately.
On Friday, he went back to the Bank to unfroze the account so as to be able to perform a transaction. The account was unfrozen. On getting to POS stand, he wanted to withdraw Eighty thousand naira but to his surprised, he was told insufficient balance. He felt like urinating on that spot. The funniest part of it is that when he checked his account balance through First Bank Mobile Application, the Money was there.
He rushed to the Bank again and told them what he experienced at the POS stand. When the customer care run a check on his account, he discovered that his money has been used to play Sportybet and they couldn't trace it because it was an online transaction.
This my friend hate anything like gambling. How is it possible to hack someone's account without giving them your details? What can he do to retrieve back his money?
